There finally will be a count! 

Well, for a little while today it had appeared that the opposition hide finally agreed to go to the "repair" process to see if the 800,000 plus signatures done in the same handwriting were authentic, in which case people could show up and say they did indeed sign for the recall, or they are, as many suspect, fakes. But no sooner than I write this then the opposition takes everything back to the courts (again) in order to avoid the "repair" process.

The opposition still can't seem to come to grips with the fact that if it wants a recall referendum against president Chavez it needs to clearly show that it has the requited 2.4 million LEGITIMATE signatures and not hundreds of thousands of signatures that it forged after the fact.

If they really did get these signatures in a legitimate way then why are they so unwilling to demonstrate it by having people come foward and attest to the authenticity of their signatures? It makes it seem that they know something that they are not admitting to publically (like the signatures being forged).
